As an athlete you should be focused on the game, not personal hygiene. Training can take a toll on your skin, therefore it's a good idea to be prepared for whatever the upcoming season throws your way. Fellas, avoid the nicknames, farmer's tan and chaffed nipples with these 5 Skin Care Products Every Athlete Should Consider.
Gillette Odor Shield Sport Deodorant
Sure, you can try the whole au naturel approach, but for the sake of everyone around you, put on some deodorant, man! Really, this one’s a no-brainer. Deodorant should be a part of your everyday routine, especially if you’re an athlete. It’s the best method to keep your armpits stink and sweet free.
The Gillette Odor Shield solid deodorant is designed to help eliminate odor and turn it into freshness for all-day clean. It will keep you dry and comfortable, giving you the confidence to focus on your performance rather than your perspiration.
Copportone Sport PRO Series DuraFlex SPF 30 Sunscreen
Not all sports are played under the blaring sun, but all athletes are prone to sunburns at one time or another. So do yourself a favor and grab some sunscreen—we recommend Copportone Sport PRO Series DuraFlex SPF 30.
Using new DuraFlex technology, this spray-on sunscreen moves with your skin rather than restricting it and making it sticky. It’s easy to apply, goes on light, yet stays on strong enough to last through the toughest of workouts.
You know how some sunblock gets into your eyes and stings like hell? Well this one doesn’t. It dries quickly, and offers all the sun protection you’ll need to get ahead of the game. It also offers protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays, and is water resistant for 80 minutes.
Body Glide Anti-Chafe Balm
Blisters, chafing, and skin irritation are discomforts that all athletes are prone to. Fortunately, there’s an easy solution to the problem: Body Glide Anti-Chafe Balm.
Designed for all-sport use, the naturally formulated balm creates an invisible shield on your skin to prevent friction caused by rubbing. It can be applied to virtually any part of the body, including: arms, legs, neck, chest, groin, and beyond. The Anti-Chafe balm is water and sweat resistant, yet is versatile enough to allow moisture to escape in order to let your skin breathe. For even greater skin protection, it contains aloe vera and Vitamin E to help protect against dryness, and is petroleum-free so it won’t clog pores. Best of all, it glides on easily like a solid deodorant, meaning you don’t have to worry about creating a mess.
Dr. Scholl's Odor-X Foot Spray
As long as you wear shoes, you should continue to use Dr. Scholl's Odor-X Foot Spray. One tiny spray of this stuff and you’ll have lasting protection against sweat and odor. Yes, this means no more stinky feet, and equally as important, less smelly sneakers.
The Odor-X Foot Spray is formulated to destroy odor instantly, and absorb sweat on contact. The convenient spray bottle is easy to use and leaves the feet feeling cool and comfortable. You’ll thank us later for this one.
Seventh Generation Facial Cloths
For times when you don’t have the liberty of hitting the showers right away, Seventh Generation Facial Cloths are clutch. These gentle cleansing cloths are infused with 100% plant-based cleansers that leave your skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
The disposable wipes are technically created for facial use, though they’re versatile enough to be used all over the body for clean, healthy skin. We recommend keeping a pack of these bad boys in your locker at all times.
